Bob Dylan and the Bobolaters
Adam Gopnik - a lifelong fan of Bob Dylan - muses on Dylan's "utterly predictable lack of gratitude" towards his Nobel Prize.
"The terrible and intriguing truth", he writes, is that "people are tragically impressed by indifference...and pitifully contemptuous of the charming".
The Dylans of this world, Gopnik says "impress us as the true egotists we secretly are".
Producer: Adele Armstrong.

a nail on a head
Return of a 1970's sexual zeitgeist. The ludicrous and rigidly feigned morality of the
conservatives today could unscrew their faces once and get a clue. Everyone does
what they want without regard to national political agendas.
